I bet for SMC Pentax-F 35-70mm/F3.5. Fastest AF and covers 60-70mm as required.

Want sharp, high IQ lens. 60-70 area. My 70 ltd has great IQ but the deal breaker is no manual f stop ring. Fudge that, I hate no F ring. If your suggestion has no F ring, dont send it in either. Will look at native as well as 3rd party lenses. No AF is OK. Highest IQ mandatory.
One week and 32 posts later,
no-one has yet suggested any prime lens within the 60-70mm range to replace the DA 70.
So OK, here goes:

Lens Carl Zeiss Makro-Planar 60 mm f/ 2.8 C/Y Features, photos, MTF charts, feedback, user reviews, tests :: AllPhotoLenses.com

It might need Leitaxing.

It is very good, and beyond my imagination of lens. However you have to work to change its mount from C/Y to Pentax-K that includes cutting body etc. Or do you have an adapter from Zeiss too (the adapter must have a lens inside, so why use Zeiss lens if you use low-grade lens in your adapter ?). Other option close to your requirement is the excellent Pentax K-/M-/A- SMC 55mm/F1.8 manual from the past.

Check leitax.com
They sell kits to change mounts.
